Just wanted to thank you guys in advance for providing so much good advice. In the last couple weeks I've pieced together what I think will be the last rig I buy for several years (pause for my wife to die laughing...) (drum roll please...) SWR Grand Prix preamp: $174 shipped, broken input jacks soon to be fixed. Stewart World 600: $225 shipped from musicgoround and, just won on e-bay... Epifani 2x12 for $560 shipped MAN I can't wait for it all to get here... it should kick booty in just about every setting, and it's not much heavier than my EBS 210 combo (for sale ) which alsk kicked booty, but wasn't quite enough in some instances. yeah now I just gotta practice enough to deserve it. Epifani sounds sooooo nice!
